U-M has won 28 of its last 35 games dating back to last year

Since Izzo and MSU's meltdown at Crisler last year we finished that particular season on a 12-3 run and it seems we've pick right up on that momentum from last year. Was that Beilein's second most pivotal win of his tenure here? After obviously the 2011 win at Breslin

This poster has been plaguing the board under different names for a month now. At times, it has operated multiple accounts that it uses to dialog with itself. It's pretty easy to spot. This is not an African-American. This...whatever...is engaging in a minstrel act for reasons known only to itself. I know that because I am an African-American. I know the difference between authenticity and racist characature, and the others can see through this as well.

But I think the poster actually thinks they are helping this place by doing this.  I believe this is a long-time, well-known poster who is upset at what they perceive (rightly or wrongly) as unfair treatment here by others and want Brian & Seth to institute some sort of checking system prior to issuing user names.  So they are creaing and recreating new users who get caved pretty fast to try and "force" this change.

Mind you I have zero proof of any of this so i'm not "naming names" but based on comments made both here and on Twitter I have a pretty good idea of who I think this is.  And yes, totally agree they are most definitely NOT an African-American.  That is obvious as hell.

Cause about a year ago I made reference here inside an obscure and lightly visited thread about one of our MGoAuthors that someday I wanted to write a book.  I even connected here with the actual author so I could get tips on publishing someday.  It's almost like you read and remembered that.

But that would be impossible given how "new" you are to the board now wouldn't it?

This is a plausible scenario of a user responding to what they perceived to be troll behavior directed personally at them by fake accounts. They decide they might as well get in on the game and troll away.

There are some other scenarios that could make sense; for example, someone getting caved and deciding to take out their frustrations on the board at large. 

We all have suspicions. I would like some evidence. I find it hard to believe that the proprietors don't have some tools that can help them discern where this is coming from, and honestly it surprises me that they appear to have neither said nor done anything about this. 

Because whatever justification said individual may believe they have, whatever indignities they have unfairly suffered (and I have lamented the poor treatement of at least a couple of the possible individuals, even stuck up for them on here), this is ultimately the petty expression of a pitiful man whose life is too wrapped up in a message board and who lacks the intellectual strength to argue on a fair basis. It's disappointing, and a course of action that embodies the worst stereotypes we have of MSU and OSU fans.

Whoever it is, I hope they can take some time away (real time away, not fake time) and find themselves a bit more clearly.

Yeah, Old's explanation makes a LOT of a sense. It's why he can't change the tone of the posts from minstrel show cartoonery to something that at least sounds authentic. It has to offend people--he requires an angry response to force the action he wants. If he tones it down it just blends in. if the mods can't stop this I may have to reactivate my Twitter account and share his minstrel jive with that portion of the Twitterverse that follows him. Harrass us here, I harrass you there.

Toning down really doesn't matter. I've seen a number of genuine posters here get banned recently for going against the grain of the MGoGroupThink.

And quite frankly, you @Clarence are part of the group think police. Before you point fingers, you may wish to take a look in the mirror first.

As usual you said it far more eloquently than I ever could.  FWIW I know at least one Mod who has lobbied Brian & Seth strongly for the phone number verification suggestion made a while ago.  Would be fairly easy to implement and would bring these "new" accounts to a screeching halt IMO.

State your suspicions.  That would be an interesting Diary!

who lacks the intellectual strength to argue on a fair basis.

That's baloney. Whenever someone here goes against the MgoGrain, the reaction is swift by the masses. The lack of emotional intelligence on this board you claim is not what you think it is... it's rather common and widespread.

Name your names.

Personally, I think that would be a great thread!

I'm curious becuase I've been attributed to 5 DIFFERENT accounts.  Everyone guessed wrong.  One person was hell bent on who I was though (funny enough, that accuser got banned too!)

If you guess correctly, I promise to reveal myself!
